Delinquency or Disability?

This week on LD Live! I spoke with Ron Hume, Exec Director NCO Youth and Family Services, and chair of the LDA Committee on Justice about the high prevalence of ADHD and LD in youth who meet up with the juvenile justice system. While some parents are finding that the NCLB measures are insuring a higher level of education for their children with disabilities, (Washington Post article) we still have a long way to go in meeting the needs of students with learning difficulties.

Benna Golubtchik, Senior Faculty Advisor Teachers Network, posts several ideas for creating more multi-sensory classrooms, and she tells students not to ask how smart they are, but ask, "How am I smart?" Watch video! How are you smart?
